RE: storing rockbox settings and data in a separate directory?

Your suggestion is greatly appreciated as it annoys me when all my settings and my scores fly out of my ipod every single time i update my installation.
The settings could be stored like this:
.rockbox folder
The writing above is a suggestion on how the files could be arranged, but this will require some coding..Mhv. Daniel G Brenden
